Until you led me that way I didn't check internic. My registrar told me
that network solutions would be where I go for to change the IP associated
with my domain. So I was waiting for them. I did the whois at internic and
it told me opensrs had my records. I was led astray.

This is where the confusion stemmed from.

Cool. Does this mean I'll be important?:}

One thing: do I need a zone file for ns.advancecreations.com?? The only
thing I have is 

SOA advancecreations w/
@     IN    NS    ns.advancecreations.com
ns    IN    A     advancecreations

I'm so used to doing everything with /etc/hosts and /etc/HOSTNAME that I
don't get how any machine will know the server is on my machine.
